Looking for new cell phone.

Recommended Posts

Have you looked at Nokia phones? Really rugged.

I have not, got any in particular in mind?

 

Apology accepted kenneth, i'm dead beat too, about to crash.

My younger brother has the Rugby III now.  He got it for Christmas last year.  He had a Rugby II before and he swore it was indestructible.  My brother works in construction and dropped his previous Rugby II off a 10ft high scaffold and other than some dings that phone still worked. He finally killed it when he dropped it into a porta-pottie.

 

He says that the III isn't anywhere near as rugged as the II and he would still recommend the II, but not the III.

 

I edited this post after I got off the phone with him to make sure I remembered the story correctly..................................

 

He would have purchased another II at Christmas, but couldn't find one in stock so he opted on the III.

well i hope you find one that's right for you speed,...i recently went from my old tried and true windows 7 lg quantum (passed along to the wife) to my first full on smart phone, the htc one x, that lasted me for about a week (and went to my daughter), and was replaced with a Sammy s4 galaxy...this galaxy thing has all the bells and whistles, and completely replaces the custom built truck computer that i used to take with me on the road...s4 battery life isn't the greatest and the screen isn't as big as a monitor (duh) but it pretty much does everything i can do on any machine at home...

Haha, those porta-potties can mess some stuff up. We fished an handgun (don't ask) out of one at the farm after a week... that sucker was eaten to pieces platic all corroded and the bluing was gone and rust everywhere.

Sounds like the tought phone i need, now to see if i can find one in stock.

Thanks man, as much as i would like to have a toy like that, it just doesn't fit what i need it to do. I can see it being awesome for you on the road, but on the farm it wouldn't last long.
